Ola has acquired Geospok to build the next generation of environmental technology

Ola said Tuesday that the geographical service provider has acquired Geospok, a move that will help develop technology to make mobility accessible and convenient for vehicles and private vehicles.

Ola’s chairman and team executive Bavash agrees on Twitter: “New mobility requires better, new maps and geographic services. We will take the first step in building these by contacting @GeoSpoc. Look forward to working with @DhruvaRajan and the team to build the future of local services! ”

He did not provide details.

In his blog post, he said improved geo-location services will also go a long way in improving urban planning ahead of road networks, better public transportation and congestion.

“Duruva and his team of geospatial scientists and engineers will join Ola to develop technologies that make mobile, globally accessible, sustainable, personalized and comfortable on shared and private vehicles,” he said.

Although the companies do not specify the number of employees, Geospok is estimated to have more than 80 employees.

According to Agarwal, in order to cover 50 to 100 percent of India’s population in the coming years, maps need to be improved in various ways.

“Multi-modal transport options require geographical intelligence to understand the unique benefits of each option and to make recommendations accordingly. As aerial models such as drones become more important, maps should take into account the three-dimensional view of the world. ”

He said accurate and rich maps with a high user context should be available to the public beyond the first 100 million users.

It should also be included in maps to better understand road quality near real-time satellite imagery, as well as improvements such as removing bad roads at night for safety reasons.

In addition, shopping requires HD and 3D maps that provide superior visual, dynamic real-time updates based on road, traffic and weather.

We have the data and expertise to build this using our 2, 3 and 4 giant network that provides an in-depth understanding of consumer activities and unprecedented geo-location details.

Agarwal added: “This information reflects the changing landscape of the world by transmitting this information as new satellite images and Western food from our network.
